Youtube Channels for Freelancers


There is a plethora of useful resources for freelancers out there and here at Sagegroupy we are always looking for ways to help you have an easier time on your freelance journey. So far we have helped you find online courses, resources for learning how to code and some useful podcasts, now we are going to turn to Youtube. It is a great place for solopreneurs to find inspiration, motivation and lessons on developing all sorts of skills that are relevant to you as you grow your own business. That’s right, Youtube is not just an entertaining time-sucking service, it has a vast amount of knowledge available for free - and free is the best price for people without the cash to spend on courses and other education. Plus it is a great way to sneak some productivity into your lunch break because most videos pack a lot of information into 30 minutes or less.

Here are a few places you can find various videos to suit your needs:

There are so many more great Youtube channels for freelancers available, but beware - there are also a few unscrupulous people on there claiming if you only do X, Y and Z just like them, you can be making thousands of dollars a month in a short amount of time. If something sounds too good to be true, it's probably a scam!
